Hoof Trimming

Learn horse handling techniques to help your horse be willing and comfortable during the trimming of their feet. Shown here are what tools you will need and how to effectively use them. Learn a mapping system to take the guesswork out of what needs to be trimmed and what needs to be left. This map also shows you how to balance the foot and how to recognize distortion and address it properly. This will position the foot for the best support of the internal structure of the feet and legs for maximum comfort and performance. Instructors are Dennis Cappel -- school founder, trainer and farrier -- and Mike Walsh, certified ELPO farrier specializing in hoof mapping.
